+1 on the "All Along the Watchtower". From Jimi would have to also include "Purple Haze" and "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)"

Others I like (too lazy to link):

- "Layla" (Derek and the Dominos - Duane Allman)

- "Whipping Post" (Allman Brothers - Duane Allman)

- "Reeling in the Years" (Steely Dan - Elliot Randall )

- "Maggot Brain" (Funkadelic - Eddie Hazel)

- "That Lady" (Isley Brothers - Ernie Isley)

- "Highway Star" (Deep Purple - Ritchie Blackmore)

- "Texas Flood" (Stevie Ray Vaughn)

- "Scorpio" (Dennis Coffey; also a great bass solo by Bob Babbitt)

- "Slide" (Slave - Mark "Drac" Hicks)

- "Battle Without Honor or Humanity" (Tomoyasu Hotei)

Maybe this one, which starts at about 3:50 and hits escape velocity at 7:45.



Other faves that come to mind are All Along the Watchtower, White Room, Aqualung, I'd Love to Change the World, Heaven and Hell, November Rain ...

Yes, one of my favorite CDs, and I saw that show in Chicago.

Maybe I should say, I don't know where to begin because I would never know where to end. Even that one CD has about a hundred examples of great solos.

Such a broad category, but it should be fun.

How about Orianthi? May not be "the best", but definitely interesting.

I also think the "Maggot Brain" (Funkadelic - Eddie Hazel) is one of the best ever.

My favorite "Voodoo Chile" is by Eric Clapton on the Clapton/Winwood 2009 tour album.

"Comfortably Numb" - David Gilmour/Pink Floyd
